Mikel Arteta has hailed the "unbelievable quality" of reported Arsenal target Santi Cazorla.

Cazorla, 27, has been strongly linked with a summer transfer to the Gunners, with reports suggesting the Malaga midfielder could be signed for around €20 million.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger moved to cool the speculation this week, although the French coach did admit he remains in the market for recruitments, having already signed Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud.

Speaking of his Spanish compatriot, Arteta said: "I cannot talk about the actual situation, but I can say that I know him as a player really well.

"And he's a top, top player. He has got unbelievable quality and talent and that is all I can say."

Wenger echoed Arteta's sentiments, saying: "I share the opinion of Mikel Arteta. Cazorla is a great player.

"We bought Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski, but we are not at the end of the transfers. We will still bring players in."
